Adam’s Story

Adam was isolated and stuck at home. Growing Lives has given him purpose and direction.

Adam lived alone and was extremely isolated with minimal contact with other people. His previous social interaction was limited to the pub and he had not been going due to lockdown. He continued to drink alone at home and was regularly binge drinking and spending days in bed.

When he first came to Growing Lives, Adam spent one day a week in the craft room to help him slowly build up his confidence. He was very quiet and did not communicate much with the tutors or other participants. Over time he has grown in confidence, and he is now engaging in more activities.

Adam is looking forward to building his own bike in bike club and taking this for rides down the canal path. He now feels more motivated to reduce his drinking.

We have used a stock photo and changed Adamโ€™s name to protect his anonymity.
